Is there a way to move all customers who have made commerce accounts into being Members without making them sign up again?

Created a site a year ago where the client was offering their customers memberships to buy.

The client didn't want to pay the extra per month for a Members Area, so I set set up memberships to buy through a commerce store instead (see Screenshot 1).

If you look at Screenshot 2 attached you can see there are quite a few customers who purchased these memberships. Now the problem is that the client wants an actual membership area. Is there a way for me to move all the customers (who have technically already bought memberships) into the new membership area? 

If this isn't technically possible, what would be the best way for me to make this transition manually? An email sent to current commerce customers?

It isn't possible to migrate them automatically, but you can email these customers and explain how to access the new member area.

If they are already paying for membership through the subscription product, you can provide them with a discount code to allow them to 'purchase' access to the member area without paying again.
